Venice Calling

Bad news, buddy: Nicola Granillo is going to steal your girlfriend. That unshaven, sensitive-looking guy with the open collar and the $45,000 violin is from Venice. He plays with Interpreti Veneziani — chamber music. And it’s Italian chamber music, the best kind.
Geminiani, Vivaldi, Handel, Halvorsen, Paga­nini. Those are the composers. They’re all dead, so they’re not stealing her. But Granillo and the other musicians — they’re trouble. They play at 7:30 p.m. at the Lied Center (1600 Stewart Drive in Lawrence, 785-864-2722). Oh, wait, here’s a thought: If harpsichords creep the girlfriend out, then you’re in luck. But otherwise, she’s carrying someone’s instrument case home tonight, and that’s not a euphemism. See— Scott Wilson
